Instructions
  1. Prepare pasta according to package instructions. Reserve ½ cup pasta water before draining.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage to the pan and cook until browned, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Add the beans, broth, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and lemon juice to the pan. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Add the pasta, reserved pasta water, chard, basil, and pepper to the pan. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, or until chard is slightly wilted. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.
Recipe Notes

Mix It Up: You could use turkey sausage in place of the chicken sausage and spinach in place of the chard if you prefer.
